Program Description:


 Finding Meaning: The Synergy of Psychology and Art

Dates: May 9-25, 2018

This program is an opportunity to study abroad in Austria and Switzerland during May Interim 2018.  This program, Finding Meaning: The Synergy of Psychology and Art, promises to be fun-filled as we explore the intersection of art and psychology.  This study abroad has broad appeal to students with interest in art and psychology. There are no pre-requisites.
This course presents an overview of three influential 20th century theorists of psychotherapy, (i.e., Dr. Sigmund Freud, Dr. Carl G. Jung, and Dr. Viktor E. Frankl) and examines their influence on modern and contemporary art. Through this journey, we will discover how these theorists impacted modern and contemporary art and culture. Using smartphones and/or digital cameras, mobile apps and other related software, we will create a visual and literary journal documenting this unique experience.
So, join us in May for an immersion into Austrian and Swiss culture. We will visit institutes closely aligned with these three theorists, view modern and contemporary art at local galleries and museums, tour cities rich in amazing architecture, listen to live music, savor great chocolate, drink coffee in Freud’s favorite coffee shop, photograph iconic landscapes and explore other cultural and educational opportunities in these two remarkable countries.
